Midwife Vicky runs our 4 1/2 hour Hypnobirthing essentials course at The Shala in WEST NORWOOD, or Lenka Wills ‘home from home’ photography studio in EAST DULWICH

These calming environments are perfect for learning and practicing hypnobirthing with your birth partner, enabling you both to get as much as possible from the experience. These small group sessions provide a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. We break for tea and cake half-way through the session to give everyone a chance to mingle, chat, and get to know one another.

This unique midwife-led hypnobirthing course provides you with the tools to practice and prepare for birth as a couple. You will learn hypnosis techniques to guide you through your pregnancy and support you whilst giving birth to your baby, along with active birthing positions, practical advice for labour and birth, aromatherapy, and how to work best together to complement and reinforce your hypnobirthing practice.

You can start the hypnobirthing course at any stage of pregnancy, although the earlier you start the better. We recommend that you book your course to begin when you are around 25 weeks pregnant onwards. Don't worry if you are earlier, or later than this date - you can contact us if you have any questions.

We provide intimate sessions with a limited group size - this is unlike many other group hypnobirthing courses that are available - and this format creates the relaxed and comfortable environment that is necessary for effective learning and practice. It also allows Vicky, to more easily tailor the course to suit the needs of those attending, where suitable. 



Vicky is a qualified KGhypnobirthing teacher - the leading hypnobirthing provider in the UK and Royal Collage of Midwives accredited course. 

Her interest in Hypnobirthing sparked while supporting families in pregnancy and labour, and witnessing the profound positive impact Hypnobirthing can have on couples birth preparation and birth experience. She has designed a course that highlights the key factors of practicing Hypnobirthing, how couples can make it individual to them, easy to practice and combine with practical techniques to support pregnancy and birth.
